The Wedding

Our friends Charity and Reynaldo were married on July 31st, Bridget's birthday.

It was the first wedding our kids have attended and they were SO excited about it! Henry just loves to get dressed up, and his first question was, "Do you think it would be appropriate if I dressed 'cowboy' for the wedding?" I told him I thought that would be nice, and Jonah ended up following Henry's lead.

Henry just loved all the details from the wedding. After seeing the bride, he leaned over to Sam and said, "I didn't know they even made dresses that beautiful!". He also enjoyed the table decorations at the reception. Jonah's favorite part was the actual ceremony. He was very intent on what was happening and what was said. They both wanted to know at which exact moment the couple was actually married. :)

I had a green dress set out to wear, but Bridget insisted I wear blue to match her. I thought that was a grand idea, and since it was her birthday, I obliged.

Sam went casual and wore a brown shirt and shorts. Some were giving him a hard time about it until his brother pointed out the blue stitching in his shirt and suggested Sam had worn it to match me. So that made it perfect! (By the way, I tried VERY hard to get a nice picture of Sam and Bridget but one of them was always making a face...and it wasn't always Bridget!)

After the wedding, we headed to Cracker Barrel with Sam's folks to celebrate Bridget's birthday with them. It was a great evening and a wonderful way to celebrate!

Cole picked out his clothes too. He's the only one of my kids who loves to dress up.

What a fun day! I love that the boys were so interested- it's fun to see God's fairytales, and I bet with their pure, childlike hearts they really saw it like God does :) How precious!

Oh this made me chuckle. I don't know your hubby but knowing the rest of the Hasz brothers I can so see it and you seem so obliging. I love it.
